Anyone who has come across the Pints and Panels beer blog knows Em Sauter’s style. The certified Cicerone, artist and beer lover puts an entertaining and unique spin on her beer reviews by illustrating her thoughts and feedback for whatever beer she’s sipping on, in comic-strip fashion. Sauter uses this same clever format in her first book, Beer is for Everyone! (of Drinking Age), a picture-perfect comic book designed to not only tell, but also show, the ins and outs of the wonderful world of beer.
This 166-page book is packed with beer history, style breakdowns and some seriously good recommendations, without being heavy-handed. It’s relatable and the information is easily-digestible. Sauter keeps a jaunty tone throughout, entertaining readers with everything from a singing hop cone to an illustrated likeness of Allagash’s own Rob Tod.
Beer is for Everyone! (of Drinking Age) is lighthearted and fun, which is exactly how beer should be. We’re dubbing this the beer book for everyone (of drinking age).
